Exchange GAL search by keyword RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sir,

    I am using exchange 2007 and using Outlook 2007 as client email.
    I have problem searching contact from GAL using keywords.

    For example, let say the user name is

    Mani Maran s/o Vijay

    So we arrage this name like this in exchange 2007.

    First Name: Mani Maran
    Middle Name or Intial : s/o
    Last Name: Vijay
    email: m_maran@abc.com

    So the display name will be
    Mani Maran s/o Vijay

    So when i search "Mani" or "Vijay" i get the contacts

    but when i search "Maran" it is not matching with any result.

    That means the outlook only detects first partial from first name and first partial from last name.

    I wanted search by keywords

    Any help
    thanks
    regards,
    Mani

  • Hi Mani,

    You could use “advanced find” in address book page. It can distinguish first name/last name, Outlook only detects first partial from first/last name. The situation you described is by design. So far as I know, there is no way to search by keywords in Outlook.

    Thanks,
